As far as I’m aware honey crystallisation has nothing to do with the type of bee it is produced by.

Maybe it is pure luck  than in 5 years of having carniolen breed next to italian breed their honey is just

smoother less crystalised after 1-3 years. My understanding is that crystalised honey has more sugar

content to water. Could it be carniolans just package their goods a bit less concentrated? Only two

As I learned the biggest impact comes from ratio of glucosis/fructosis in honey. Higher the glucosis faster the crystalisation. Also lower temps may increase speed of crystalisation.

OSR, sunflower, spring honey..  has higher content of glucosis than fructosis.
